Day Tripper: DC Edition

Beware the Ides of March, they say. Yet I'm tempting fate by flying to and from our nation's capital for work today. A last-minute addition to the trip at that. Not that I really believe in all that stuff. Superstition's one thing, but can one even believe in Shakespeare?

"Cut your losses and make 'em a deal."

I'm assuming I'll make it back from the trip intact, so we'll see you fine folks right back here tomorrow. Enjoy your pebbles.

Slack Link of the Day: I checked the archives to see whether or not I used the corny "Ides of March" thing last year, and sure enough, I did. In doing so, I learned that today's the one-year anniversary of Dad Cowboy's hilarious and oh-so-racist joke about robot golf caddies. Feel free to laugh and immediately feel guilty.

Slack Video of the Day: I saw this preview on the tele the other day and thought it looked right up my alley. Count me in on seeing this when it comes out -- Thank You For Smoking.

Slack Song of the Day: Fitting on this day, here's a mighty fine Julius from July 16, 1998 at The Gorge in Washington. Starts off even-keeled, but the boys really lay it on thick after a few minutes. Listening to this, I'm reminded of how well Jon Fishman plays drums.

Great video this AM! As for this glorious Julius on July 16, 1998, I was there. The Gorge is an amazing venue and these two shows were special. Thanks for sharing it!

My friends and I were inspired by the line in the movie trailer about putting the sex back in cigarettes and we made this website...

Just click on the image and enjoy the audio entertainment

Thank you for your considerations

Damn it, Ace. Had I known you were going to be here, I'd have asked you to lunch!

Sorry Momentary, not a moment to spare...I've got some friends down there I didn't even call because I knew I had no time (like Jesse Spano).

I was on C-Span a bunch yesterday, which is a nice consolation.
